Toni Fowler was facing charges from the Kapisanan ng Social Media Broadcasters ng Pilipinas (KSMBP) for alleged immorality being promoted by the influencer to the public.
On September 27, 2023, Atty. Mark Tolentino, the legal counsel of the group, said that they’re filing three counts of violation of Article 201 of the Revised Penal Code (RPC) in relation to the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012.
Tolentino showed some parts of Toni’s controversial music video ‘KPL’ where they pointed out that one of the casts of the production was a minor.
“This is a minor, tingin ko pamangkin niya to, minor child, 17 pa siya sa video na ito. Habang naliligo sila, may sabon, umiinom ng alak and then ginagawa nilang dekorasyon is yung organ ng lalake,” Tolentino said.
The lawyer pointed out that there’s some limit to the freedom of expression.
“Kasi when you say freedom of press or freedom of expression, hindi absolute ‘yan. May mga limitation ang freedom of press… the second limitation is Article 201 of the RPC. Ito ‘yung nagbibigay ng indecent publication,” he said.
“Like in this case of Ms. Toni Fowler, may nagpakita siya, kumakanta siya ng mga bastos,” he added.

As of writing, Toni has yet to give any response to the charges she was facing.
It can be recalled that the same group also filed charges against It’s Showtime host Vice Ganda for allegedly performing indecent acts on Isip Bata segment of the noontime show.
